I tried using the portfile attached without success, are all the commented lines supposed to be commented ?
I did the following steps:

1. I setup a folder for my local macports "~/Documents/Loc_Macports/"
2. Inside this folder I set up the directory structure according to what I understood from the port file attached:
   "~/Documents/Loc_Macports/devel/lang/mono/" and put the portfile in that folder
3.I didn't see any patch files in the port file (all are commented) - so I didn't do anything regarding this.
4. I edited the source.conf file with :
       open -a TextEdit /opt/local/etc/ports/sources.conf
and added before the following line:

before this line :
rsync://rsync.macports.org/release/tarballs/ports.tar [default]

5. I indexed my local repository:
portindex ~/Documents/Loc_Macports/

But i received notification that none were indexed and here I'm stuck.

Any insights ?

So, firstly, I build my own 64bit mono.  In that last thread, I said I was doing it off of their tar ball.

I updated that slightly.  I now maintain my own local "mac ports" port file.

Attached is the latest one I built.  It may need updating.  And at the very least, you probably want to update it to build into a different place than my company's directory on my systems.

Once it's built, it does create it's own pkg-config directory so you can use it in building python-net

You can try and build against the usual 32-bit mono distributions on OSX.  But it's usually a bad idea.  Python is usually 64-bit in most places you'd want to use it in OSX.  When Xamarin finally gets around to fully distributing in 64-bit on OSX by default, things will be easier and this part won't be necessary.

I want to run python.NET  on MAC OSX (Mountain Lion) and since I'm new to MAC/UNIX and I'm not a programmer I naturally turned to the web:

*1st : I tried iron python using eclipse with MONO (configuring eclipse iron python interpreter to the mono framework "/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/icy" file) - eclipse doesn't allow this and I got the following error:

"No output was in the standard output when trying to create the interpreter info."

*2nd : I tried python.NET on XAMARIN :

I followed all the instructions but it's not clear to me how can I write python in XAMARIN, import clr  etc. (I set up the solution as explained in the link above but I'm not sure about the next step).

* 3rd try :
I found a post on this mailing list :

I tried using the original makefile and setup.py (both makefiles) with "sudo setup.py install" and received the following error:
"dyld: DYLD_ environment variables being ignored because main executable (/usr/bin/sudo) is setuid or setgid
/bin/sh: pkg-config: command not found
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 46, in <module>
    argsDict = pkgconfig('glib-2.0', 'mono-2')
  File "setup.py", line 32, in pkgconfig
    raise RuntimeError("An error has occured")
RuntimeError: An error has occured

I also tried editing the makefiles and setup.py according to the diff file supplied in the thread but still no success.

Is there a makefile/ setup.py file that will work on MAC ? maybe some sort of step by step monkey guide... :-)

I appreciate the help,
